Dear Mr. Blai .
I have your letter inquiring whether the charge to which former State
Representative Luis Arroyo, a member of the General Assembly Retirement System (GARS),
pled guilty is a felony relating to or arising out of or in connection with his service as a
member as that phrase is used in section 2-156 of the Illinois Pension Code (the Pension Code)
(40 ILCS 5/2-156 (West 2020)). For the reasons stated below, it is my opinion that Arroyo's
felony conviction of the offense of fraud by wire, radio, or television (18 U.S.C. §§ 1343, 1346
(2012)) related to, arose out of, or was in connection with his official duties as a State
Representative, thereby requiring the forfeiture of his pension benefits.
